New DVD on Improving Safety When Mooring Ships

October 19, 2011

The UK P&I Club applauded the European Harbour Masters’ Committee (EHMC) for its release of a new DVD entitled “The Missing Link, improving the mooring process.”
The UK Club has for a long time been very concerned about the number and severity of accidents which occur when ships are under tow or are engaged in mooring alongside. Even fatalities to crew and to shoreside mooring gangs are not rare occurrences while far too many incidents result in injuries that will end a seafarer’s or stevedore’s career. Despite much publicity regarding the risks, the ‘do’s and do not’s’ when working as part of a mooring party, the Club says the claims still keep coming in, often accompanied by horrific photographs.
